8th International Conference on Social Values in Education and Business

July 19-21, 2006, University of Oxford, England

Conference Theme:

Ethical Conflict and the “Sleep of Reason”


Conflict: National, Global, Sectarian, Corporate, Psychological, and Educational

Ethical issues and conflict remain universal concerns. The interaction of cultures and economies through the spread of globalization has led to an increase in diversity. At the same time there is a counter-movement leading to homogenization. This blending impacts values, attitudes, needs, expectations, and lifestyles.

We are seeking broad-based papers which explore the ethical conflicts which arise from these interactions. Negotiating this emerging environment requires new skills and educational approaches. Papers are invited which focus on global, national, sectarian, corporate, psychological and educational arenas in which these concerns are played out.


  • Conflict in training concepts for corporate change management
  • Conflict in the management of policy and action
  • Conflict in skills education and change management
  • Conflict in cultural work habits and the global corporation
  • Conflict in capability and expectation in the work place
  • Conflict in management processes open to interpretation and unfair practices
  • Conflict in advancement processes and the legal environment
  • Conflict in corporate cultures
  • Conflict Within the Self
  • Interpersonal issues in conflict
  • Sectarian conflict
  • Conflict in international settings
  • Conflict between progress and sustainability

All papers are double-blind reviewed for acceptance
and will be published in Volume 11 of the ongoing series on Social Values published by Oxford University Centre for the Study of Values in Education and Business

To facilitate debate and exchange of views, we intend to accommodate a greater and more exciting variety of presentation styles, including paper sessions, workshops, and plenary sessions and working paper sessions.
